Storyline

The film shows that Romanian peasants were divided between those opposing and those embracing collectivization. The opposing peasants being mostly the wealthy ones had the most to lose from the process of collectivization while the poor landless ones had the most to gain. The heated debates between the pro and con camps would ultimately lead to murder and to state authorities' intervention in order to calm down the peasants. The viewers also have a chance to get a glimpse into traditional Romanian folklore and village life in rural Romania during the 1950s. Written by nufs68

Trivia

This film's main topic is the agricultural collectivization taking place in Romania during early socialist times.The agricultural collectivization was a initiative inspired by socialism by which individual land-owning peasants pooled their respective lands and resources into a single unit.This single common unit was jointly owned and farmed.The resulting crops would equally be divided between peasants.The surplus or a fixed annual quota would go to the state in return for state's assistance with agricultural machinery, seed, pesticides and irrigation works.

Goofs

The film suggests that agricultural collectivization in Romania during the 1950s was generally welcomed by most Romanian peasants and that it was a free choice voluntary process.Today when the secret archives of Communism behind the Iron Curtain have been declassified we know for a fact that agricultural collectivization in Romania was a mandatory forced process dictated by a brutal and repressive Communist regime acting at the orders of its Soviet masters.
